Introduction: Multiple Sclerosis is a common disease in the central nervous system that causes muscle-sensitive side effects. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of 8 weeks of training on the Burdenko method and its effect on fatigue, flexibility and strength in women with MS.
Methodology: The statistical sample of this study was 24 women with MS with the disability level (EDSS≤5.5) and mean age of 37.84 ± 5.83, height 20.93 ± 153.45 cm and weight of 10.33 ± 65.50 kg were selected purposefully. They were randomly divided into two groups: water and drought and control group. To measure the subjects, Fatigue Questionnaire (MFIS-5), Wells Flexibility Test, and 30 Seconds Session and Rise for Lower Body Strength were used. The two training groups performed the exercise protocol, which included water and dry exercises, for 8 weeks, 3 sessions per week.
Results: The results of covariance test showed that there is a significant difference between the mean values ​​of fatigue test in 3 groups after 8 weeks of training (p = 0.001) and also between the mean values ​​of Wales flexibility test in 3 groups after exercise (p = 0.0001). There was a significant difference between the mean values ​​of lower limb strength in the 3 groups (p = 0.0001). The results of post hoc test showed that there was a significant difference between fatigue and flexural strength and lower extremity strength in training groups in water and drought with control group (p < 0.05). However, fatigue and strength between training group in dry and training groups in Water was not significantly different (p > 0.05) but there was a significant difference between the two groups in the Welsh flexibility test (p < 0.05). The results of t-test showed a significant reduction in the subjects' fatigue after exercise (p = 0.0001), dryness (p = 0.01), and also significant improvements in Wales flexural tests and lower limb strength after exercise (p = 0.0001), (p = 0.002) and dryness (p = 0.0001) (p = 0.006) than the pre-test.
Discussion: The results of this study showed that exercise in two water-rich environments can effectively improve the flexibility and strength of the lower extremities, as well as decrease the fatigue intensity of individuals. According to the findings of this study, Burdenkomi practice can be recommended as a suitable method for rehabilitation along with drug use in patients with multiple sclerosis.
